Japanese Knotweed: The Invasive
Plant That Eats the Value of Your Home

Newsweek, by Christopher Middleton

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/6/2014 5:34:34 AM

When the German botanist Philipp von Siebold sent a variety of plant specimens to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew in August 1850, he had no idea what he was unleashing on the world. Among the various floral and tuberous growths he dispatched was a plant which, 164 years later, is leaving a trail of mayhem all across the planet. It goes by the name of Japanese knotweed, or Fallopia japonica. It presents a pleasing appearance to the eye: heart-shaped leaves, bamboo stems and pretty, little white-flower tassels. What is less obvious is this plant’s relentless killer instinct. Look through the

Arrgh! This stuff reminds me of the bamboo that my goofy brother-in-law planted in our back yard. It spread like wildfire and took five years of digging, pulling, and chemicals to finally (I hope!) get rid of it. It was like the monster in a B horror movie; every time we thought we were rid of it, it´d come back from the dead. This knotweed must be it´s first cousin.

A warning on my last post. It will require a new bureaucracy of several hundred thousand new federal employees, thousands of pages of new regulations, billions of dollars spent yearly, and oh yes-an increase in taxes. Heck, just keep the weed.

I sincerely hope the botanists do not import the insects that eat the knotwood. Then there will be one more pest to worry about. The Japanese beetles (or June bugs) attack every year and it is a war until they die out the first of July. Use the other methods!

Sounds like kudzu for the north. We have a lot of miscanthus fragmoides here in SE Michigan which also spreads by both seed and rhizomes. I had some of it in one bed and it was a bear to get rid of it. Took several years since I didn´t want to damage the plants in that bed.

Don´t tell the U.S. government or they will have it planted all across the country....I forecast that in 100 years or less, the South will be just one large kudzu field, thanks to the Soil Conservation Service. My Dad´s old house is about to be covered in kudzu. The only thing that consoles me is that HE set it out in a gully about a quarter-mile from his house.

The UK has been struggling with this noxious weed for some years now. The article does not exaggerate its powers to destroy driveways and render infested homesteads impossible to sell. It was unknown (or rare) in the UK when I left in the late 60s.

If you scour the Mail and the Telegraph via their search engines, you´ll probably find some articles on the stuff. Oh--and if you search on the plant name plus "UK" you should be able to dredge up some info there too.

Poison ivy, greenbrier and such are best treated by pouring a little brush killer into a clean tuna fish can, or the like, and using either a small artist paint brush or Q-tip to dab a cut stem. Use a good receptacle to contain the cut stems and WEAR GLOVES which can be thrown in the trash afterwards. Do not burn the clippings of poison anything, because you will inhale the smoke which results in breathing difficulty.

There are several beautiful vines that will cause you to be the enemy of your neighbors if you plant them. Morning Glory is one of the worst I´ve seen. Absolutely uncontrollable unless you´ve got time to trim it (and pick up every single trimming from the ground immediately) every day. Jasmine is another. Gorgeous when in bloom, but they´ll just choke everything else out.

When I had a Morning Glory problem I did some research. Basically you have to dig up your entire bed, work in flat leaf weed killer, cover it with a tarp so it gets no sun for at least six months, and then hopefully you´ll have gotten rid of it. *shudder* Awful stuff.

#19, I don´t find Morning Glory to be that big a problem and I can´t even get Jasmine to grow in a hot Texas climate, but my nemesis is Trumpet Vine. The seeds scatter everywhere and each one seems to sprout. There are Trumpet Vines springing up all over my lawn and in each flower bed. I am vigilant, but I think I´m losing the battle.

Once I dug up the back yard to get rid of the invasive lily-of-the-valley (Salpichroa) vine. But I couldn´t find every last root or dig up the neighbor´s place. It even kills ivy, which is way easier to get rid of. At least I can keep it away from the house as it doesn´t like shade.

An intruder made his way across the White House lawn and through the building almost to the Obama living quarters before being stopped by a Secret Service officer who was off duty: This chilling news is more than just a kind of melodramatic movie scenario come true. Next to the military, the Secret Service is probably the most highly regarded institution within the executive branch. Or it was.

Ted Cruz´s presidential campaign, which began more or less the day after he was elected to the Senate almost two years ago, is becoming a bit more official. “It´s 90/10 he´s in,” a Cruz aide told National Journal’s Tim Alberta. That’s not exactly news, because Cruz has been campaigning hard for years. It’s part of the game candidates play -- most runs get announced unofficially at least once or twice, and sometimes half a dozen times, before the official declaration. Cruz is terrific at generating attention, and at firing up conservative voters. He won the straw poll at the annual Value

The U.S. and Russia are sinking billions into nuclear-capable bombers, missiles, and submarines. Another round of “Mutually Assured Destruction,” anyone? Four years ago, a North American Aerospace Defense Command officer sang the praises of a joint counter-terrorism exercise with Russian forces, named Vigilant Eagle. “This exercise is one milestone in working together. Our folks are proud to be a part of such an important event and are passionate about partaking in efforts to protect our borders,” 176th Air Control Squadron operations officer Lt. Col. John Oberst said. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but the lessons learned from Vigilant Eagle

His eyes shot over his rimless glasses and landed first on me, then my attorney, who could not have performed a more perfect interpretation of 2x12 plank if we had entered into a life-and-death game of charades.

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama´s escalating military campaign in Iraq and Syria has drowned out the economic pitch he hoped would help salvage a midterm election that has been favoring Republicans. But the airstrikes against Islamic State extremists have also introduced a new complicating factor into the fall campaign, forcing both sides to reassess their closing political messages. Obama is drawing new attention to the nation´s recovery from the Great Recession with a speech Thursday at Northwestern University, linking U.S. stature abroad to economic strength at home. It is a delicate argument for a president whose handling of pocketbook issues remains

By now, you’re probably familiar with the fact that some people in the US refuse to vaccinate their children. You are probably also familiar with the raging debate over vaccine refusal and whether parents should suck it up and vaccinate their kids for the sake of herd immunity, the common good, and society. But a recent piece in the Hollywood Reporter by Gary Baum really cuts to the heart of the vaccine refusal issue: It’s a class and privilege problem. The people refusing to vaccinate are primarily wealthy, coming from backgrounds of privilege, following in the footsteps of their wealthy and

The federal government is giving an ObamaCare insurance navigator Seedco, which has a reported history of fraud, $1.4 million to operate in Tennessee this fiscal year. Last year, Seedco received $1.2 million for the same services in Tennessee. As reported, the federal government sued Seedco on the grounds it faked at least 1,400 of 6,500 job placements under a $22.2 million federally funded contract with New York City. Seedco, according to National Review, had to settle that lawsuit.

GOLDEN, Colo. - Hundreds of suburban Denver high school students missed school again Monday as teachers shut down two high schools by calling in sick amid a controversy over proposed changes to an Advanced Placement history class and changes to their pay. Classes were canceled at Golden and Jefferson high schools after 81 percent and 70 percent of teachers called in sick respectively. Some students who had the day off hit the street to protest against a proposal from the board´s new conservative majority to review the history course to make sure it promotes patriotism and doesn´t condone social disorder.

The unequivocal statement from Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying on Tuesday dashed hopes that the standoff between demonstrators and authorities could be resolved quickly through negotiations. It does not come as a surprise given that showing a willingness to talk would have made the Chinese leadership appear weak, which could embolden dissidents, critics and separatists on the mainland.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols.

The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner.

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week.
